Last summer I started experimenting with making images from things
I found in my yard. I plan to continue this work over the next few months.
I have not found any cameras yet to dissect so I can
try out some of John Neel's ideas.
I did find an old slide projector with two interesting lenses.
Last summer I bought a very odd collection of slides at a flea market.
I've been wanting to design lamps that would project the image on a wall
as a piece of art. So first I want to see how the lenses are placed and/or how a
projector works. I bet it's simple. With LED lights I would be able to forgo the fan
that is usually needed in a projector.
I have just come across the work of Andy Goldsworthy a
British environmental sculptor.
Netflix has a documentary that follows Mr. Goldsworthy as he created some rather
phenomenal works in interesting landscapes.
The documentary is Rivers and Tides.
If you can't find it in "search" on Netflix go into your account on-line and in preferences
pick art and design categories.
Another not to miss art series is Art21 produced by PBS.
Here are a few of Mr. Goldsworthy's creations.
They have opened up my mind and made me think bigger,
and not just in size.
